—  Katy Linda

Is it your dream to have your own office for your private lactation practice?

We all dream about making it look pretty and what kind of couch we would want, but there’s so much more than just the decor to think about.

In this episode, we are chatting with Katy Linda, IBCLC all about finding and designing your dream office from the not so fun part of thinking about parking to the decorating part (which is our favorite part!).

Katy helps us focus on the important aspects of finding your dream office while giving practical tips for making sure it works for you and your business.

As a mom of four, Katy knows that being a parent is a tough job.  Her own parenting and breastfeeding journey has not been without challenges, and she knows her clients won’t be either. Katy helps the breastfeeding parent and their baby be comfortable with their breastfeeding relationship.
